Virtuality by Harry Wegley is a compelling thriller with strong technological themes and an interesting romance to spice it up. Vince van Gordon has just inherited a controlling interest in the high-tech company called Virtuality. Once a struggling author, he has a new responsibility. His dying brother has cautioned that he shouldn’t sell his share of the business, advising him to seek the help of Jessica Jamison, the beautiful and intelligent woman that Vince left behind seven years ago. Virtuality has created a mysterious product that the US Army classifies as Top Secret and if it falls into the wrong hands, a lot could be at stake. But is Vince ready to travel to Seattle to face the girl he once hurt deeply? And when someone tries to kill Vince and Jess, they must not only find out who it is, but stay alive to protect a secret that can ruin millions of lives.

Harry Wegley’s novel had me gripped from the very beginning. The narrative is emotionally intense, and this is obvious even from the first page, with well-crafted scenes and dialogues that allow characters to evolve through the story. The conflict is strong and it affects characters in interesting ways. Vince needs a woman he once abandoned to protect a company. Jess has a very strong personality, coming across as focused and driven. I enjoyed the way her background is explored. Putting the two characters together is ideal to add a level of complexity to the plot and keep the tension high. The novel is well written, with timely paragraph breaks, a lot of drama, and the kind of suspense that makes the reading experience an enjoyable one.
